Collaborative efforts between medical professionals, parents and other caregivers of individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and community members are essential for the delivery of quality care and programming across settings. This chapter explores the meaning, purpose, and components of collaboration, as well as models of collaboration that have been shown to be effective. A collaborative approach with shared decision-making between professionals and consumers leads to improved outcomes, as well as increased success for individuals with ASD and their families. Individualization is a key aspect to successful treatment planning and management. Communities must take shared responsibility for the successful outcomes of individuals with ASD and their families.
